Although the charges were officially presented to the accused, his plea was postponed until Monday, August 14, to grant the prosecution adequate time to finalize their inquiry.

Rashid Ahmed, who had been on the run since August 4, was apprehended after a resident of Wa filed a complaint with the Upper West Regional police CID, accusing him of engaging in sexual acts with over 30 children in Wa.

Police sources indicate that he had successfully evaded capture for the preceding two months.
